Dr. Jon’s Savannah Sunrise

If you’re one for a sweet, fruity, and floral scent, the Dr. Jon’s Savannah Sunrise scent might be worth considering … particularly if you like peaches.   The scent is a blend of Orange Blossom, Peach, Gardenia, Jasmine and Honeysuckle.  Personally, I’m not one for floral or sweet fruity scents.  It’s not a hard and fast rule of mine and it’s not that I hate floral or fruit aromas (I actually do like lemon and lime).  But, it isn’t something that I reach for first. 
Dr. Jon's Savannah Sunrise Shave Soap and Aftershave Tonic

Like other Dr. Jon’s Shaving Soap that I’ve used and written about, the Savannah Sunrise Soap performs well.   I usually use the Marco Method (a very wet brush) to load my brushes.  So, the brush loads fairly quickly and I can face lather (or scalp lather for the head shaves) pretty easily.   It is a very soft soap (or croap) and the scent is modestly strong when smelling it in the tin up close and when lathering. When lathered, I’m pretty aware of the sweet, peachy scent.  But, it is a rather pleasant scent  and I don't find it overwhelming.  After rinsing my face I would still smell a trace of it, but it isn’t heavy.  If I use a face wash, I find that it pretty much disappears.

Lathering the Shave Soap

The Savannah Sunrise Aftershave Tonic smells very close to the soap.  To my nose it is strong as I’m aware of the aroma for a couple of hours.  Though, I do speculate that I’m just more aware it’s there because it’s not something that I frequently use.  I will say that I think it has a nice sting to it.   Since it contains alcohol, witch hazel, and menthol, I get the astringent sting at first and then the cooling menthol burn shortly thereafter.  Personally, it’s a satisfying post shave treatment.

Savannah Sunrise Aftershave Tonic

For me, I think my preferences tend to lean towards what I would classify as more traditional wet shaving aromas; like Bay Rum, Sandalwood, Barbershop, or some type of Menthol/Mint.   Even though sweet fruit, floral scents may not be my thing, I do find Savannah Sunrise to be a very pleasant scent.  The strength of the scent of the aftershave tonic dissuades me from using it regularly as I’m aware of that sweetness for longer than I find comfortable.  I do like the performance of the Dr. Jon’s shaving soap and aftershave tonics.  The soap is easy to lather and protects my skin during a shave and the aftershave tonic gives me a satisfying burn.   If you like peach more than I do, this soap might be something to add into the rotation.
